This area has rich soils that are ideally suited for the production of cereal crops and forages. Over 80 percent of the land in Idaho County is owned by the federal government or the state. Beef cattle is the county’s number one agricultural commodity in terms of gross revenues generated. This is closely followed by wheat and barley.
